Great food has been part of Port Eliot’s DNA since our very first year when freshly caught local fish, crab linguine and icy cold Sancerre was served up by the local pub on the lush lawn of the Bowling Green.

We’ve always prided ourselves in the range and quality of food available across the Port Eliot Festival site. As our yearly world-class lineup on the Flower and Fodder stage attests, we’ve built longstanding relationships with some of the most renowned chefs, restauranteurs and food producers in the business. We’ve been lucky enough, over the years, to host restaurants from the likes of Polpo, River Cottage and Fortnum and Mason.

We also like to celebrate the rich food culture of Cornwall and the South West – you’ll always find stalls offering a great selection of locally-sourced sustainable seafood, and local producers cooking traditional delicacies from scratch.

But that’s not to say that you won’t find a rich selection of international street-food too – there’s something to suit every palate.

And when it comes to drinks, we have locally roasted coffees, craft beers, fine wines and a range of tipples that’s sure to tickle your fancy.
